"STRATO welcomes new Top Level Domains as they are able to add new potential to the market. Headquartered in Berlin, we're in close touch with one of the largest GLBT Communities throughout Europe. From our personal experience, we know the power of the Gay Movement and thus strongly believe in a huge worldwide support for the dotGay TLD, turning it quickly into a success story, and providing identity and pride to the Community even in less 'liberal' regions of the world "
Damian Schmidt CEO
"In our view it is crucial for the success of new gTLDs that they have a defined target group, that they are run by experienced people from the domain industry and that they are valuable to the registrant. Not many new gTLDs currently in discussion fulfill these criteria. However, we do strongly believe that .GAY meet the requirements and brings it to a perfect fit. .GAY will be among the new gTLDs that have a successful future in the community and the internet."
Alexander Siffrin Founder and CEO
"Name.com believes strongly in personal identity and supports dotGay in it's endeavor to create a .GAY TLD. We believe dotGay will provide a unique opportunity for businesses to court gay dollars and for LGBTQ individuals to find highly targeted information in an easy to navigate manner."
"Berlin Pride (CSD Berlin) provides a gigantic stage for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community in Berlin. The Parade attracts more than half a million participants and the cultural and educational program consists of hundreds of events from all walks of gay life. dotGAY could be the stage of the worldwide gay community in the internet. We support the initiative to create a .gay top level domain. "
